that language again and again from jay carney, that the u.s. is deeply disappointed, the president again saying last night that we are disappointed. there have been a lot of complaints from u.s. officials about the way the russians had handled this move, even though there were signs that it might be coming. for instance, they weren't giving a heads-up up that it was taking place. they were surprised by the timing of it, a sense that the relationship is not working well behind the scenes, apart from the public displays, but not necessarily working well publicly either. what about the one-on- one relationship between president clinton and president obama? -- president been putin and president obama? guest: it has been interesting. they agree to disagree on the subject of stereo. you cannot get more tense in the body language between them. it seemed to be very cold. ae president also expecting personal disappointment and feeling it though. the russians had not lived up to what he had expected of them. treating thely u.s. the way that they had expected based on bilateral relations in the past. the

that are affordable and accessible. these men and women are outstanding. they have helped us in our exercises and drills and our training. i know that the council of governors is anxious to explore a better defined role for our national guard in this new domain. we also signed a $3 million cybersecurity tax credit into law to accelerate job growth in this field. for all of the focus that we have seen on the national level, we still have a lot of work to do in order to elevate the collaboration between a federal government and states in this realm. that is where the nga resource center on's eight cybersecurity's is working. we are working to fill the void. one of these tools is the governor's call to action for cybersecurity that will lay out a framework that all of us can pursue. governance authority, risk assessment, continuous vulnerability and threat assessments and the like. we also introduced an electronic dashboard that governors can use to understand their states level of readiness at a glance. moving forward, we are exploring for areas. we are looking for stronger collaboration betwee

because it's not been used very much. it's the issue of the right of the states and the right of the individual when possible through jury nullification to nullify the unconstitutional laws coming out of washington, d.c. it's a neat issue to bring liberals and conservatives together. because conservatives get a bad wrap because i believe in state's rights, yeah, that means you're a racist. that's the way -- that's their mentality. but i like the last paragraph of the declaration of independence because they talk about free and independent states as if they were countries -- they emphasize that in the declaration. so so this is what will have to happen is it might really happen when there's chaos. in detroit and things like that. is there a government in detroit right now? i mean, is there a police force? oh, yeah, there's a burglar outside of my house. i think i'll call the police. it's over with. so when the federal government can't respond because the money doesn't work and they can't pay the military and the troops come home, that's the way the soviet system collapsed. if t
the president has undercut us. he speaks in a schizophrenic way. he should be the one out there on national television. he should be the one of there, instead of talking about phony scandals, he should be talking about the speeches he has made about islamic terrorism and tell us why the nsa program is so important. [applause] we are up against a situation where people considered republicans or conservatives are defending a program of left of center president refuses to defend it himself. the country has to come first. that is why i believe a program such as the nsa, that as the basis for today's program, is so essential. let me talk about privacy versus security. menace of communist the 1940s and 1950s, we face an enemy which is overseas and right here in our own country. willing enemy which is to carry out attacks in our own country. during the cold war, the soviets were not going to do that. a new that would mean all-out war. because the enemy is asymmetric, it is not as easy for us to respond. maintain as much of a security level as we can without infringing on civil liberties. within th

know, the russians had not lived up to what he had expected of not necessarily in treating the u.s. the way that they had expected based on relations in the past. the two men, again, not a particularly warm dynamic and there was a lot of discussion after their last appearance about the notable tension between them. host: reading from the top of the statement, " we reached a conclusion that there's not enough recent progress to hold a bilateral meeting with russian president newton, so the meeting sorussian president putin. the meeting has been canceled " guest: you have been hearing a lot of talk, even more tension from congressional leaders pushing for the g 20 summit to be moved which was not going to happen or for the u.s. to consider withdrawal from the olympics, which are to take place in russia next year. the early reaction to this announcement has been positive. he had a comment from chuck schumer saying the president made the right decision. -- in the the press past that putin has been behaving like a schoolyard bully . host: moving ahead, what happens next? >> it will be i

for people to use. it is extremely likely that the high deductible rush holt quoted will be wrought down -- deductible that was quoted will be brought down. actually increased the floors of subsidies to people over the aca and the status quo. the other point that is relevant is that ending community rating actually makes it cheaper for people to go out and buy down their deductibles, for example. it becomes more feasible to bring your deductible down a lot if you are in one of the healthier roots. .- healthier groups to the point he made, if he is 100% correct and not much of the variance is explained by its, i will note that current policy already attempts to make these kinds of distinctions by transferring more medicaid coverage to people who are medically needy, for example. problems ints of the way we defined who is sick and who is medically needy. is this problem with how do you i do who is sick? that is not a problem that is unique to our plan. it is unique to any kind of legislation that tries to assist the sick. i do not think there are any particularly bulletproof ways of doing
your wisdom. sorry, everybody. >> we thought you were going to tell us whether ben bernanke is going to ease. [laughter] >> you are stealing my material. but that is all right. i have got more stuff. >> manufacturing, international trade, have been huge in texas. oil and gas more recently has been a big proponent of growth. not only a high national population growth rate. not just international, but domestic immigration. it is interesting in recent years, in the 1990's, international -- it really took off in texas. it became extremely important. recent years, domestic migration has been more important than international. it shows the growth differential that is broadening. if you look, i will admit the four percent growth rotted sounds like a -- project complicate lofty goal. we are actually averaging over four percent growth. inflation adjusted. the state of texas, yes. amazing growths the other point i want to make is there has also been a big transformation at the texas economy. of the 20th century, the oil, the cotton, and the cattle state. it was not until the 1980's and
. agency, we based our research direction on where the biology leads us and where the scientific insights are, rather than tissue. host: what are the next steps that you have this information for your institute? guest: trying to develop registries. the best way to learn a natural behavior of a tumor detected by screening is to follow it forward in time. the best way to do that is with prospectively-collecting registries, tumors that are annotated, the talk about the stage and what it looks like, we know what nutations they have, and in addition, how they were diagnosed. screening tends to detect slow-growing regions. another area of research is how to best convey the underlying biology. finally, working on ways to modify the terminology to better fit what we know about the biology. kramer, thank you for your time. we go now to the center for american progress here in washington, d.c. a look at the discretion of school district consolidation. the issues include funding, the economy, and funding school systems.

, again we probably would find common ground. i would also like to see us get rid of sequestration, but do it by recontributing the cuts to the nondiscretionary side of the budget where i think they belong. we need to keep the savings, that's why the deficit is coming down, but there's certainly smarter and better ways to do that. if the president is willing to do that, i suspect he would find a willing negotiating partner on our side of the aisle. in fact, though, many of my friends advocate what is effectively a third tax increase this year. we had a tax increase with the so-called fiscal cliff when all the bush tax cuts ended. the president used that to raise taxes. we have a tax increase this year associated with his health care plan kicking in that's major. now my friends on the other side of the aisle want a third tax increase, and to keep the government open and operating. we think we can spend money better and smarter, and that we ought to continue to reduce spending not increase the burdens on the american people. finally, i want to talk to my friend who discussed obamacare. she's
conroy: let us pray. dear lord, we give you thanks for giving us another day. we come to you as a nation in the midst of great uncertainty and worry as people look for causes and solutions. the temptation is great to seek ideological position. we ask that you might send your spirit of peace and and all elected to represent our nation might work together humbly, recognizing the best in each other's hopes to bring stability and direction toward a strong future. this chamber will soon be silent. members gone for the august recess. the weather continues to damage crops. the economy continues to struggle. sequestration threatens interest of all americans from a myriad points of view. during the coming weeks, may all americans find respite from all their struggles, and may all members of this people's house find rest and resolve, to return to the service of these united states as citizens empowered by their constituents to address the needs of the nation. ay all that is done this day be for your greater honor and glory. amen. the speaker: the chair has examined the journal of the last day's pr
know, this bill is truly astonishing. we have serious issues before us. we should be focused on job creation, comprehensive immigration reform, providing nutrition assistance to children and seniors, postal reform or funding the government, but we're again debating partisan bills that stand no chance of becoming law, including the 40th vote to defund or repeal the affordable care act. now you know as kids were told that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones so i hope my colleagues on the other side of the aisle haven't given one bonus to one of their senior staff members. i hope that that is the case. that you have not given one bonus to a senior staff member. i hope furthermore that each of you is recording all of your staff when they answer the phone, because you want to know how they're treating your constituents. this particular bill is the height of hypocrisy. it is a blatant attack on federal employees saying that the current leadership is concerned about political messaging included through repeated attacks on hardworking federal employees. it's simply shameful to say
necessary, it is needed, and if anybody would've told us on september 12, 2001 that the nypd could have stopped all these attacks over 12 years and the result of that would've been the next mayor wants to dismantle a program or cut back, they would think we are crazy. those problems are essential, necessary, and ray kelly deserves everything he could get for what he has done. [applause] a wreath note on ray kelly, and that is if the mayoral candidates are to be believed, does not seem likely that he will be asked to stay on. i think everyone of them ought to be asked specifically whether or not they would keep ray kelly on as mayor -- he should've been mayor -- >> wishful thinking. >> as police commissioner. beyond that, kelly was a candidate for several high-level post in washington, and apparently it was his stop in for its activity in the endorsement of that program and also his surveillance, radical muslim surveillance program in new york which disqualifies him. i think that that's a great deal about the administration's mindset. it's most unfortunate. question to my storingo who fa
